Teeth whitening is used to correct discoloration of the teeth by removing the yellow and brown staining. Before the patient embarks on the home teeth whitening regimen, the dentist creates a custom mouth tray for the patient. The custom tray ensures that the correct amount of whitening solution is used and the patient’s teeth are properly exposed to the whitening solution. The custom made mouth tray provides for a better fit than a one-size-fits-all mouth tray to help increase the margin of patient safety.

The steps in the home teeth whitening regimen are fairly straightforward. Dr. Dena provides the patient with the materials and instructions and also answers questions the patient may have about the procedure. Dr. Dena’s office can also provide you with answers, should you have any questions once you’ve begun.

A home whitening session can lasts about an hour, during which time you will have the tray and solution in your mouth. Typically, you will follow your home teeth whitening regimen for about 5 days.

Teeth whitening is not a permanent procedure. Results may last for one or more years, depending upon your personal habits. In most cases, the whitening procedure is very effective and the patient is pleased with the results.

Zoom Teeth Whitening

It’s difficult for some people to keep their teeth white for very long because of smoking, drinking coffee or tea, and other foods that stain teeth. You may think your teeth look yellow or dark, but how do you find the cheapest whitening strips that actually whiten your teeth?

Over-the-counter white strips, gels, toothpastes
If you choose a whitening product from your local store, make sure it contains a hydrogen peroxide as the active ingredient. Be careful with the placement, as strips can leave teeth uneven and shaded in unexpected places. The result is unsightly, and two weeks of discipline with your investment can leave you wanting real results.

Zoom Teeth Whitening is the best solution for the cost and time

At Dr. Dena, Encinitas Dentist, we offer an affordable teeth whitening solution in about one hour at our Encinitas office.

What’s the difference between In-Office whitening treatment and over-the-counter teeth whitening gels and strips?

Dr. Dena, Encinitas dentist utilizes the Zoom! chair side whitening procedure as seen on the television show Extreme Makeover. The procedure for Zoom! Whitening is quick and convenient. The first step is to isolate the teeth and protect the gums and lips. When this has been accomplished, the whitening gel is placed on the teeth. The gel is activated by a specially designed light that is directed at the teeth. The entire procedure takes just over an hour. The results are usually between 5 to 8 shades whiter.
